Professional Background

Director of Student Services - worked several years in the field of Student Affairs with oversight of Residence Life, Campus Safety, and Student Life. His work in Student Affairs provided insights into communal diversity as a wide-ranging view of educational growth and development, which corresponds to the classroom where collectively the group learns more through diverse interaction and discovery of course related materials.

Teaching Philosophy

With a continued passion for assisting students through the experience of higher education, the move from Student Affairs to Academics has proven to be a life changing experience. Jeff has been able to find a whole new passion for teaching in the classroom.  When asked how his previous position influenced his teaching he says that, “the progression that all students experience just by attending a University directly corresponds to the classroom, where collectively the student learns more through diverse interaction and discovery of course related materials.”
